IPWSO President, Professor Tony Holland introduces our 10th international conference and why you should put it in your diary now!
A great IPWSO conference in partnership with Cuban colleagues in an exotic place with an extraordinary history – what more could you want?
This 10th IPWSO conferences, like past IPWSO conferences, will provide a forum for scientific enquiry, for parents and care providers to hear about new thinking and to share and exchange their ideas, and for people with PWS to meet with each other and have fun.
IPWSO seeks to draw people together from across the world who share the common aim of making life better for people with PWS. For clinicians and scientists this is a rare chance to exchange ideas across academic disciplines and to present new findings and by taking part in the parents’ and care providers’ conferences to discuss their work and to learn from others about the concerns of families and people with PWS.
Coming together every three years is always special wherever it is in the world but meeting in Cuba brings something more, a place with grand old buildings, a beautiful coast and a music loving people. I encourage you to come and immerse yourself in the conference, see the island, and enjoy some salsa!
